First Sea Dive
We have finally gotten back into the open ocean, unfortunately without our own boat, but thankfully our good friends in Aughinish supported our dives as well as the visiting Hook SAC.
A bit windy and the visabilty left a bit to be desired but it was still good to get back in the sea.
A couple of trainee’s got their first boat dive, no hassle there.
First dive was in Chimmney Bay, wishy-washy and only a few golf balls found, who found the most, well there is still a debate about that, but I heard someone had two BCD pockets full!!!
Second dive was in Bishops, not as rough, but no life to mention really. Spray on the way back was wild, coming in hard sideways! Not nice.
The club has 110 dives already this season (that I know about) excluding KBSR and foreign dives. A cumulative depth of 1981 metres and a total time of 57hours (3422 mins)
spent underwater. We currently have 21 active divers within the club and I would hope to increase these stats during the year, well, what are you waiting for?
